Reubens, with a population of 80 is now a quiet farming community located at the top of the Camas Prairie Railroad grade.  The town grew up around the depot when railroad construction created a boom.  The "Y" track was built between 1904 and 1906 so that the train could turn around.  The movie "Breakheart Pass" was filmed in part near Reubens because of many authentic railroad locations nearby.  The town was allegedly named after a Nez Perce known as Reuben, who said the store was on his land so should be called Reuben's.
